Cell cycle-dependent calcium oscillations in mouse embryonic stem cells.

During cell cycle progression, somatic cells exhibit different patterns of intracellular Ca(2+) signals during the G(0) phase, the transition from G(1) to S, and from G(2) to M. Because pluripotent embryonic stem (ES) cells progress through cell cycle without the gap phases G(1) and G(2), we aimed to determine whether mouse ES (mES) cells still exhibit… (More)
